Subject: A historic work on Indian mapping
This is an early British work on the great trignometric survey that started in Madras and went to Bangalore and then on to find the height of Mt Everest. The survey was one of the first large scale geographical surveys or mapping efforts in the world and was partly motivated by English defeats at the hands of Tippu Sultan.

Scans of some pages are missing and others are cut or not correctly aligned, but all acceptable given that libraries are mostly inaccessible in India. Ironically maps are not prominent in India either in daily usage (public transport) or in state planning. Indeed most maps are restricted for use and copyrighted.
